    Italian Prime Minister said that both Europe and Russia must make efforts to solve the existing problems in bilateral relations.

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) Both Europe and Russia must make efforts to solve the existing problems in bilateral relations, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said Friday.

    “It is obvious that certain problems exist in relations between Europe and Russia and evidently we both have a reasonable ground to think about the past and why this problem ever occurred,” Renzi said at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

    “I find it fundamentally important … to take joint efforts and make an attempt to solve this problem looking to the future and to everything that unites us,” the prime minister said adding that Italy was among those countries most interested in strengthening presence in Russia.
